This recreation area is part of Blue Springs Lake
Longview campground is not only peaceful and quiet but also in a very pretty area filled with wildlife. There is an attendant and security arms when entering the campground and requires a key code to enter. There are over 100 sites with tent, electric, and full hook ups. The campgrounds are open from April-end of September with prices from $21-33.
There are fire grills and picnic benches at each site and the sites are level on gravel. There is a playground, volleyball net, restrooms and showers. There are 6 picnic shelters with bathrooms scattered on the way to the marina. The lake is beautiful but is not within walking distance from the campground.
We stayed from a Saturday night until Thursday. There weren’t a lot of campers so it was nice and quiet. We saw deer running through the campgrounds and will stay again.
All of the campsites are designed for campers so there’s minimal grass areas for tents. Almost all are full sun and there’s zero lake access from the campground.
Spent 1 night at Longview Campground as we get used to our new-to-us pop up. We were in spot 43. Electric only 50/30. Our spot had good shade in the afternoon but most did not so check the website’s descriptions. Plenty of room to spread out, fire ring and picnic table. Long walk to the bathroom, even longer walk to the showers. We camp with our dogs and there were plenty of others also. One particularly rude neighbor, let theirs bark all night long.
Decent time. Not as nature-y as I would’ve like, but worth visiting.
Nice camping area. We have stayed at this campground multiple times when visiting the KC area for sporting activities. Showers are clean. Sites are well taken care of. Never had any issues with noise, etc. It is a great spot to set up camp and then take advantage of all that KC has to offer.
Lots of sites to choose from overlooking the lake. Lots of secluded sites and hiking trails.
was able to get in to full hook up sight with less than 24 hr notice. (rarity) weather was perfect and campground nice! wouldn’t know you were just minutes away from the “big city”. *will be back!
Very nice facilities. Good price on firewood for the quantity.
Rrepaving the entire park, wth new gravel at most sites.
Plenty of space per site.
Nice enough site and campground. There was a fair amount of road noise at night and it's kind of a weird location
There aren't many trees and the lake wasn't accessible from the campground.
